We believe expertise is gained through experience, with sponsors transacting on numerous deals across multiple commercial real estate cycles. A more established sponsor’s network of banking relationships and capital sources complement their expertise, providing negotiating benefits and help bring favorable terms to a project. We tier our sponsors based on their experience and track record so our investors can get a sense of the firm behind the deal.
|Sponsor Designation||Age of Firm||Principal Experience||Historical Capitalization||Additional Requirements|
|Enterprise||15+ years||30+ years||Must be $5B+||
|Tenured||10+ years||20+ years||Must be $500 MM+||
|Seasoned||5+ years||10+ years||Must be $100 MM+||
|Emerging||<5 Years||5 years (at least 2)||May be < $100MM||
